My Approach to Helping
No matter the reason you are seeking therapy right now, it's important that you find someone you feel comfortable with. Effective therapy is a collaboration between you and the therapist and requires a good fit. Because you are unique, your goals and how therapy progresses will be specific to you. Creating a safe space by accepting you exactly as and where you are without judgment is an important part of the relationship we will establish. This will allow me, as we work together, to learn how best to help you achieve whatever changes you seek.
I became a therapist because I found the process of exploring my experiences, feelings and options with someone I felt safe and understood by, to be life changing. I love working with others who seek positive change in their lives. My experiences in life, from childhood to the present, have led me on an interesting journey and given me many opportunities to gain wisdom. Like you, I am human and have had to work through my own childhood adaptations. I've made many mistakes along the way and am the wiser for it. It also allows me to understand you more deeply than if I had never traveled my own journey of healing and growth.
More Info About My Practice
Does your therapist go out of town in August? Are you looking for something to 'fill the gap?' Or are you someone who is simply interested in learning to quiet your mind and listen inwardly?
If so, Summer Soul Reflections may be what you're looking for. I'm hosting a 5 week group beginning Wednesday, August 5 and running each Wednesday through September 2. The group will run from 6-7:30pm each week and the fee is $40 per session. Please visit my website for more information on the group.
My Therapy Focus
My belief is that you know what is right for you, and that you already have the answers you seek and the resources you need to live a balanced, authentic life. We look at what isn't working in your life today in relation to childhood adaptations which in some way helped you survive, but no longer serve you. We can then begin to separate the past from the present by releasing beliefs about yourself that were imposed by others. I will help you identify and deepen your connection, through felt sense awareness, with who you are today, your strengths and resources.
I also provide hypnotic preparation for childbirth and surgery.
You will find more information about how I work on my personal website.
